The Annual Bramble Mid-Solent Cricket Match In Photos

by | 29th, September 2011

THE sun shone at the annual Bramble Bank cricket match. This year old salt Sir Robin Knox-Johnson joined members from the Royal Southern Yacht Club in Hamble, Hampshire and the Island Sailing Club in Cowes on the Isle of Wight, for the annual cricket match on the Bramble Bank in the middle of the Solent. The bank is a shallow area of sea in the centre of the Solent which is exposed for about an hour during the lowest tides of the year. The teams take it in turns to win in alternate years and host the post-match festivities. Next year, should the football season not pan out, Fabio Capello’s England will be invited to play an exhibition match…for the full 90 minutes.
